Barack Obama Wants Drake To Play Him In A Biopic


There’s nothing as flattering as receiving an endorsement from the highest office. So if you were asked to play the former president of the free world, what would you say? It seems that Barack Obama would like Drake to portray him in a film.

Obama has been promoting his new memoir ‘A Promised Land’ by running press on various urban media.  The former POTUS has discussed several issues in the world, including racism, COVID-19, and, of course, everything that deals with his record-breaking new book. During his talk with Speedy Morman, on 360 Complex, Obama even shared the best candidate to play him in a future movie about his life, giving Drake his Presidential seal of approval.



“I will say this: Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants,” said Obama. “You know what, Drake has– more importantly, I think– my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”


Drake has previously stated that he would be interested in taking the lead role in Obama’s biopic. He shared his sentiment in HipHopDX back in 2012.

“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” he said at the time. “That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. I’ve been reading scripts for a while. I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now.”

Do you think Drake would be a good choice to play Barack Obama?
